the MINS student lounge

Friday, February 2, 2007 - Posted by Amanda Bast
Alright, it's Friday, I have a six hour break in my schedule during which I park my behind in a comfy couch and work all day. I am currently situated in the MINS (Macdonald Institute...get it...MMMMacdonald INStitute) student lounge, and let me tell you, it's been an interesting day.

Highlights include:

-Guy reading in a whisper to himself, laughing at what he is reading, and then saying, "c*** suckers" out loud, to no one in particular

-Awong came to visit, amused me for a good half hour or so, then left, and didn't dispose of his Timmy Ho's cup. It's still here.

-tiny little guy came waltzing in wearing gold, shiny metallic gold shoes. I laughed

-I read my facebook wall, and literally laughed out loud at a post left for me...Jimmy Chimichanga...hehe

-whispery reading guy came back for a group meeting, and turns out he's loud, so I listened to music to drown him out. I was unsuccessful. Loud Guy was here for a good hour and a half.

-I ate lunch and glared at Loud Guy

-I facebooked Awong, telling him how whispery guy from before is now Loud Guy

-Mentally poked Loud Guy's eyes out

-I watched a youtube video and had to stop it in the middle because I was laughing so hard. I have to finish watching it at some point today.

-the tallest girl I've ever seen in my life is sitting near me. At LEAST 6'4"...shocking

-my pen lid acted as a projectile and went sailing into the air, at least 10 feet up. I have to go find my pen lid now.

-ate some soy yogurt and reminded myself of the reasons why I should never eat soy yogurt. When will I learn?

-oh wow, Tall Girl just got up, tripped and almost bailed on me. Now she's gone. It took her two strides to get out of the lounge...I'm seriously in awe.

I did get some work done, I promise. People watching is fascinating. Next on my agenda is writing a little bit of my paper, buying something sweet, and then driving over to my next class (stats...hence the something sweet). My life is so thrilling, I just thought you'd all like to read about it.
